The Linear Measuring Indicator (LMI) from Hepcomotion is a compact length-measuring system that can also be adapted for rotary applications where angular measurement is required.

The LMI — which works in both clean, wash-down environments and hostile settings — is designed to deliver repeatable, precise measurement in order to improve productivity and to reduce rejects in a number of industrial applications.

According to the company, it is also a suitable addition to an automatic saw to provide an accurate cut-to-length facility for metal, wood, stone, plastic, paper or glass, for example.

Key features

  • Incremental mode is said to be suitable for cutting uniform short lengths from a single billet or for creating partial cuts at regular intervals along its length
  • Values are shown on a bright seven-digit LCD whose display is accessed via a four-button touch pad
  • Laser pointer can be attached to the device’s GV3/SL2 carriage so it can project a beam that the operator positions on the edge of the paper for the non-contact measurement and alignment of the winding process
  • Self-cleaning action of the GV3/SL2 linear systems is designed to benefit applications involving ambient dirt and debris

Designing a unique engineering principle and making it a commercial success is quite an accomplishment.  Developing that concept and embracing complementary technologies to the point where the business becomes a world leader in its field takes that achievement into a different league.  HepcoMotion has achieved both and in 2009 celebrates 40th year of trading.   

Today HepcoMotion is one of the world’s foremost innovators and manufacturers of linear motion technology.  And this can be attributed to the important tenet – continued investment in its people processes and products.  This has allowed the company to grow even at times of economical difficulty.  

Although its range of individual, linear motion products remains an important part of its business the growth area for HepcoMotion in recent years is in specials and assemblies.  Almost one fifth of its shop floor space is devoted to assembly and the company has invested heavily in flexible manufacturing to ensure that even last minute changes can be accommodated to customer specification.  

Constantly re-assessing its strengths against changing market demands continues to provide HepcoMotion with the momentum for business growth.  The culture of ongoing investment has certainly worked well throughout its first 40 years and will continue to underpin its business in the decades to come.
